Pele has told Santos star Neymar not to move to England.

Pele has told Santos star Neymar not to move to England.

The striker's performances for Santos have drawn comparisons with Pelé at the same age, and the 19-year-old has been linked to both Chelsea and Manchester City.

However, Pelé, who spent virtually all his career at Santos, thinks Neymar would be best served by developing at home.

"He can be a great player, he can be like Messi or Ronaldo, no doubt. But I think it's a little complicated for him to move to a club in England or Italy at the moment. The marking is very tight there. He would find that a little difficult because he's very young. The game is very physical in England and Italy."
